Artists taking part in Drawing Room's exhibition programme are invited to compile ‘reading lists’ that inform and expand the themes explored in their works.  This list has been compiled for Marking Language, a group exhibition exploring the relationship between linguistic communication and drawing in recent art.  Titles marked with an asterisk * are held in Outset Study.
